I am interested in going this year, have never been there before. Looking for more info on what it is all about, much chance for my kids to get autographs, etc.

You can get some autographs if you don't mind standing in long lines. There is lots of things for the kids to do, batting cages, pitching games, Twingo. Tons of collector stuff there, cards, bobbleheads, that kind of thing.

Lots of info on tickets, new ballpark, minor league teams, live radio shows with big name Twins players, broadcasters, etc.

Plan on staying awhile and you can have a good time.

Thanks DonBo.

Do you have to pay for autographs or is that the autograph party I am thinking of?

It is a glorified collectors (SALE) show in my opinion. Lines are real long to get autographs. I've been twice but wasn't thrilled about going back, and probably wouldn't go back again.

I've never been one to stand in line so I guess I'm not totaly sure, but I believe autographs are free.

The only reason I would go is for the kids to get to see players and get autographs. I don't care to buy collector stuff.

Thanks guys.

if you are looking for mauer, morneau, killebrew, blyleven get to your line a minimum of an hour and a half in advance. they do strictly enforce the cutoffs no matter how long you have been waiting.

only for minor leaguers, and not even all of them. autographs for [PoorWordUsage] players are 5 bucks, 10 for decent players and 15-25+ pending what you want signed from guys like mauer and morneau and killebrew. if you want harmon to auto a bat i think it costs 50 bucks.

also that price is per autograph, not family. two kids, double the price.

Think I will pass on it. The $ goes to a good cause, but not for me this year.

We went a few years ago. For me the attraction was seeing the clubhouse... could not believe how small it was. No photos allowed in there, tho. Fairly decent tour: sit in the dugout, go up the steps to the clubhouse, sit in the media seats. But the LINES. For EVERYTHING. Not really worth it for most things offered. And you used to get a free ticket to a game (after waiting FOREVER in a line...) now, it's a buy-one-get-one-free ticket offer. Some nice memorabilia brought in from Cooperstown... no lines there, just wander around the field looking at the stuff.

It costs more money for the better players, and even more for the past Twins' players.

Some of them even have set rules where they can't autograph certain items. I think I remember Carew wouldn't autograph any bats. Pretty ridiculous I'd say...

      @Surface Tension @eyeguy 54    The shaver style augers are easier on drills. The blades last a lot longer as well. But the two guys I tag will give great info. I have seen eyeguys nils cut and it’s fast now that he up graded drills. Surface tension sharpens nilsblades and is the go to guy for information on the in my opinion.

      Sandberg 780-7153, Ratai 780-1124, Bodri 780-6761,  I did my own with standing seam metal from Menards. Really easy to do

      I used to have that problem with my 115 merc, since it only charged at like 10 amps.  The new suzuki is more like 60 amps, plus I hooked up the third bank on my built in charger to the cranking battery.   Haven't had a problem since.

      We are planning on getting a new roof on the cabin next year.  Old one is 20 years old. Thinking about metal.   Anyone got opinions about metal roofs, or suggestions for a reliable guy to put it on?

      Ozzie we have to learn how to fish a new lake structure cause of the zebras I guess. Fish upper quite a bit and have seen no sign of clearer water yet. How did the three way rig work out?

      I just replaced my Interstate battery for my trolling motor they last 1 year and 1 month just out of warranty. Went with a different brand this time. I would also get a separate battery for all that stuff going to the starting battery.

      yes the weeds are thick in areas but it is amazing to me that traditional weed lines are not even sprouting up in areas!!  I have a section of lake that I have been walleye fishing for the past 6 years and every year there has been a weedline to follow.  The last 2 years we have seen the zebra's become prevalent and this year no weeds in that area!  Crazy

      Actually, it makes perfect sense. The car's charging system probably can't keep up for the same reason. I know when I fire up my farm tractor, even when it doesn't take much to get it started, it can take a lot longer than one realizes to recharge the batteries to full strength. During the winter, I only use the tractor for short periods so I often have to put a charger on it after each use to be sure the batteries are up to full power.    Can have similar issues with ATVs. Winches can put a pretty heavy load on the electrical system and using them to lift a blade repeatedly will put a drain on the battery that the charging system is unable to keep up to.    Starting an engine takes a lot of power and it takes more than just a few seconds to recharge the battery afterwards.
